"Hi, welcome to...."
This is a warming welcome which can be seen on any website on the home page by the naive investor. But behind of this nice welcome message can be a scammer admin waiting for you to bring a big amount of your money just like a hungry wolf waiting for you in the woods to grab you and feast with you.
Since medieval ages or far back when barter has been created, some people ,buyers or sellers , have tried to cheat and scam naive ones by asking more products or delivering less than required or paid. Later when the money has been invented , scamming and cheating intentions rates skyrocketed due to poverty or greedy .
There are so many ways of scamming or cheating in real life and on internet that all of them can't be discussed here entirely.
In this topic we will debate only online scams from earning websites such as hyips,ptcs,faucets, etc.
So,
What is a SCAM ?
The term of scam is explained in online dictionaries as an :
illegal act of tricking with the purpose of getting money from people. (collinsdictionary)
So you need to change your beliefs that a scam website is NOT only when it stops paying.


How many types of SCAMs are in the world ?

Well, scams can be found in real life or on internet such as :
  • Auction scams
  • Lottery (unexpected winnings of money or products) scams
  • Dating scams
  • Online earning websites scams
  • Banking scams, credit cards scams
  • Online shops scams
  • Charities scams
  • Jobs and employment scams
  • Personal info scams (these are also called phishing)
  • Email /personal info scams (includes extortion or blackmail)
  • Real life purchasing goods at grocery (example : get less quantity of apples than paid for)
  • Door-to-door scams
And many more ..

How many types of scams can be found on internet ?
Well there so many that i'm afraid i might miss some of them, but feel free to discuss ,share,debate and expose any type of scam you have found or heard, in this topic as a comment.
Basically a scamming type is strictly related to the type of the website .
Below you will see such classification of most common online scams :

  • Gambling/lottery websites scams
  • Investments scams (HYIP and other pyramidal schemes such as matrix , PTCs, Forex, etc)
  • Advertising networks scams
  • Dating and romance websites scams
  • Online shops (includes fake discounts , extra comisions for shipping , 3rd party personal info share, auctions, etc)
  • Bank/credit cards scams
  • Hacking scams
  • Email scams (includes extortion or blackmail)
  • Personal info scams (also known as phishing, for free or with money involved)
  • Lottery type scams (unexpected winnings of money or products)
  • Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies related scams (mining, generators, faucets, ICOs,Exchanging ,Trading , etc)
  • Online jobs/employment (payments) scams
  • Charity or medical related scams
Ok, now let's focus on money earning online related websites, PTC and faucets, ICO :

HYIP / Pyramidal schemes - Ways of scamming
Hyips and other pyramidal schemes are most known scam websites. Since they are launched, guaranteed you will be scammed because there is no way to give profit to all the investors ,there is no self sustainability in such scheme where the first members get paid with the money of the latest members. But how the last members can get money if nobody or not enough people are joining anymore.
The first members can get some profit but what if the admin of such websites decide to not pay in the first week (or even just 2-3 days) in order to save more money and then shut down the website ?
Everyone can be a victim of this kind of scam, not only the latest members.

PTCs - Ways of scamming people by admins
There are many ways to scam people with a PTC ( a dollar based one).
Please note that if a ptc is paying that doesn't mean a ptc can't scam people. Lots and lots of them are right now scams, online scams.
  • RR system : (rented referral system) is a most common form of scamming people . People will invest their savings hoping for a profit by renting referrals which in fact is an extension/addon with bots which are making "clicks" to bring money to the owner. This system of bots can be adjusted by admin making RRs to do only few clicks, become inactive forcing you to renew/extend and invest more. This is a money sink/trap. Stop beleiving that the RR system is made from real humans. This is a big lie.
  • Reorganise of the PTC : This is one of the scamming methods where ptc admins will invoke a new design needed combined with modifying rewards for the ads viewed even if it is not necessary and even if the prices to advertise are not reduced.
  • Clearing balances : This method is applied by ptc admins in order to steal money from balances from members with the reason of imminent collapse of the website event. Sometimes another reason is added such as "to many members using bots" .
  • Hacker attack : This method is invoked by some PTCs admins . "We had a forced attack of an individual or group of hackers" and stole the balances of the members or just cleared balances to make a mess on the website. That's another big lie. A real hacker won't risk his identity and waste time to try to steal around 25-50$ on a ptc. He will search for fast methods to draw as much money he can in a short amount of time and will prefer to target cryptocurrency websites/coins with lots of money available (the more anonymity available the better). Trying to withdraw those stolen $25 from a PTC into a paypal or payza account (as user) would make possible to get discovered ,his real identity. That's why a hacker can't withdraw money from a PTC after his attack.
  • Random ban : Random people (mostly those with enough money in balances) are banned without a solid reason, without ANY reason or with a lie that they used VPN, proxy, or mobile devices against ToS. Admin will steal their money after ban immediately.
  • Changing domain/server host issues : I haven't found such method of scam on PTCs, but it is very likely to happen. The PTC admin will delete some accounts or clear some balances invoking the reason that some data transfer has been lost or damaged and can't be recovered. This can help the scammer admin to make a lot of money too .
  • Random website crashes/bugs : I bet you have found at least once a website crashed. When the website is online money earning based then this is very probable that the website is not maintained by a professional admin or server. Or such event(s) can be on purpose simulated by the admin to shut down permanently the PTC by starting with random crashes/bugs. If the website didn't moved to another server and after more than few days you find "ERROR this DNS address could not be found" then you can say goodbye to your money.
  • Selective or fake payments (proofs) : This is also another most common form of scamming by PTC websites. The admin will pay selected or random pending requests but not all of them or can display a fake payment proof list. This will trick the new comers to invest money. The members with pendings can't accuse the website of not paying because some real or fake payment proofs are posted in the forums. Fake payments lists can be with fake usernames or actual users which doesn't receive their money even if they are listed on getting paid list.
  • Upgrade system : Just like on any HYIP, it is impossible for the admin to create extra money from NOTHING in order to pay subscriptions which promises investment profit. The admin might invoke the reason that he will give a better commision from his earnings from advertises but in the end you wont see that promised profit.
  • Fake huge earnings accounts/ forum posts : PTC admins gets full access to the template /script/account creation and can make hundreds of accounts under different country flags and can post in the forum through those accounts (mostly upgraded with HUGE earnings) fake comments ,about how wonderful and profitable is that PTC. Hundreds of members are tricked with this method making them to invest thousands of dollars. (These are showing off, fake accounts)
  • Higher minimum amount to withdraw : This is also a form of scamming people on PTC. New members doesn't know that the withdrawal minimum is raised by $2 after every withdraw and many of them are quitting activity with random amounts in balances when they find out that the minimum withdraw is $10 and they have to click on ads for a year. Sometimes the minimum can be raised by admins without a prior notice making people to leave some money on accounts and quit. Admins can save dozens of dollars like this by making people to quit.
  • Direct referrals scam method : This method of scamming people is most common and used and it is based on cheating people by not registering all or random direct referrals and/or lowering the comision and/or set as inactive.
  • Withdraw (requests) errors (simulated or real) : Admins can modify the process of requesting withdrawals so the members will get errors every time they try to withdraw thinking that the bug is real. In some cases it could be real but also can be a simulated bug and most likely administrator of the website will not respond to ticket support or a patterned reply such as "We are working to fix this problem" which could be delivered to the sender of the ticket support' inbox or posted in a topic on that website to gain some time.
  • Endless withdraw pending : Some members or all of them might wait for theie money withdrawal pendings to be approved forever but they can't complain about that because the admin might take care to display updated Selective or fake payments (proofs) list/page which can be faked.
Keep in mind : If a PTC member doesn't have funds to withdraw then he can't withdraw anything and the website will still be online and nobody can accuse the website of being a SCAM as long as the website pays or is displaying (fake or not) payments .
So a PTC can be online even as a scam . SCAM it's NOT only when the website doesn't pay anymore.
Examples of online scamming ptcs :
Neobux : forms of scamming : upgrade and RR system,banning random people without reason, fake comments on forums from accounts with huge earnings . There is also an account where a member claims to have purchased a new car with the profit from Neobux !!
Lexiadz : forms of scamming: This PTC had a lowering AVG of the RR system but most known and recently is a "hacker attack" combined with a reorganisation of the website . Balances from members has been cleared.
Clixten : Forms of scamming : RR system by lowering the AVG (average of the clicks from RR) but most huge scam form is reorganisation of the website leading to clearing balances of the members (this year) and invoking the reason of "to many members using bots". Also fake account posts on forum. Upgrade system is also present on the website.
If you post in forum about getting cheated on RR system you will be banned.
After this "reorganisation" ,Clixten introduced shares system.
Twickerz : form of scamming : RR system . The admin declared on the website forum in a random post that "purchasing RR for basic members is not recommended " . At least she was honest about this form of scamming but didn't removed it.
Buxvertise : form of scamming : RR system + upgrade system .

Faucets - Admin ways of scamming people
The percent of faucets scams is much lower than the PTC one ,however the bitcoin price can make an admin to scam members or to make an honest faucet to collapse .
The methods to scam people in faucets can be same with ones from the PTC website described above except the RR and the upgrade system which are not found in the faucets.
A particular way of scamming on faucets is :

  • Bitcoin price excuse : The admin faucet will invoke such excuse that the bitcoin price is to high and can't pay anymore and will need to shut down the faucet. Sometimes faucets can be shut down without any prior notice . Even if the reason is real and the faucet was honest and needs to shut down , it will be classified by many as a scam. In some other cases ,the faucet will stop paying but it will be online for long time silently waiting for new visitors.
Example of online scamming faucet :
Welovefaucets network is a scamming network with 3 active faucets. You can see bellow the screenshot proof of scamming people off their balances. I am one of those with 15700 satoshi scammed https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1587573.msg18405136#msg18405136
welovefaucets3-play bitcoin- scam proof.jpg

ICO - Admin ways of scamming people
Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) are basically cryptocurrencies or tokens in it pre-launch form.
For example if a scammer announces that he launches Brohm ICO it means that he plans to release Brohm coin (cryptocurrency) but will try to sell an amount of such coins before launching at discount prices .
Slogans such as : "BUY now 100 ICO and receive 150" or "BUY now this ICO at 50% discount in the first week from the 3 weeks selling phases" or "get some free ICO for referring others" are very often seen.
ICOs are the latest/newest way of scamming and some of them has already claimed millions of dollars income on discount sales from naive people. Governments are starting to ban ICOs.
Because there are now so many cryptocurrencies and ICOs created/launched (by amateurs or not) ,even a honest admin can fail and can be classified as a scammer even if his intentions are not to scam people.

Well, this is all for now, this info guide took me to long time to create , if i will have any other later addition i will post in a comment. This guide is made from my experience and is unique on internet but feel free to share it if you like/need.

Stay safe and don't be so naive with your money and don't open emails from unknown sources.

Stay safe and don't be so naive with your money and don't open emails from unknown sources.

This information is very educating. I haven't read the full article but I will finish the rest tomorrow. I never knew there were dating scams. I have only come across pyramid schemes and ptc scams.

I will save this on my notepad for reference. There are so many scams out there and some of us still get scammed because we are always caught unaware. I feel my habit of saying no to offers has saved me from many real life scams.

I never knew there were dating scams..
Example:
Female X meets in a random occasion on social media such as facebook, Male Y.
The woman is usually from (or claiming to be from) a poor country or a 3rd world country and will scam online naive men from developed countries, helped by someone else.
The woman will keep talking/texting with the new friend met online, for like a month or 2 or more and will tell to Male Y that she is single or with "just an old friend but nothing serious" . She will send pictures (usually fake) to show how beautiful she is.. in a poor family/country. He (Male Y) will decide that he wants to meet her to get married and she will agree and will ask for money to make passport,for fly ticket, etc. He will send her money and wait.
Suddenly after 1 week or less, after receiving money, while on webcam chatting maybe telling about the progress on making papers/passport, a man enters in woman's room and will start to argue and yell at her about cheating him on internet ,in front of the screen, live, so the Male Y can see the whole "fight". She will "have to" shut down the webcam forever or for a week when she goes online again telling that she can't come anymore to his country because her "just a friend but nothing serious" is very aggressive and will follow her everywhere and she plans leave him and will go online again when she is single. And the Male Y will wait..and wait...and wait .

In pyramid schemes, those who invest last always lose out. I, therefore, advise you to be first in any pyramid scheme.;) But be careful when you are investing online. Your investment online maybe in terms of money, time and even internet.

Thank you very much for feedback.

I have updated the Hacker attack method with the most known reason why a real hacker wont risk everything for a PTC and for $25 or so :D.

Edit October 24, 2017 :
-updated main topic post with Withdraw (requests) errors/bugs (simulated or real) and Endless withdraw pending methods of scamming.
-updated example of scamming online faucet with most recent screenshot (october 24,2017) from that faucet.

Thank you for explaining what a scam is and going through the different types of scams. I think in this day you have been careful of what websites you visit incase they are trying to scam you. However, Beer Money Forums is a good money making forum and tells which are the legit websites to make money and which are the scams sites.

I can't understand people how invest $50 or more bucks in scam sites. Like is to hard go to Google and type "site name rewievs" and read what people say about site, especially if it's older site.

Thank you for the very informative post. Another scam I've seen is that many PTC sites with a medium-high cashout minimum (for example you need to earn $10 before cashing out) will make you earn with little work the first few dollars, but then the work slows down and you can't really earn enough money to cash out.
Or sometimes there are hidden fees, for example they boast about letting you cash out at $5 then there is a 20% fee for payments under $20 + paypal fees and so on, and in the end you earn only half of what you claimed.

Example:
Female X meets in a random occasion on social media such as facebook, Male Y.
The woman is usually from (or claiming to be from) a poor country or a 3rd world country and will scam online naive men from developed countries, helped by someone else.
The woman will keep talking/texting with the new friend met online, for like a month or 2 or more and will tell to Male Y that she is single or with "just an old friend but nothing serious" . She will send pictures (usually fake) to show how beautiful she is.. in a poor family/country. He (Male Y) will decide that he wants to meet her to get married and she will agree and will ask for money to make passport,for fly ticket, etc. He will send her money and wait.
Suddenly after 1 week or less, after receiving money, while on webcam chatting maybe telling about the progress on making papers/passport, a man enters in woman's room and will start to argue and yell at her about cheating him on internet ,in front of the screen, live, so the Male Y can see the whole "fight". She will "have to" shut down the webcam forever or for a week when she goes online again telling that she can't come anymore to his country because her "just a friend but nothing serious" is very aggressive and will follow her everywhere and she plans leave him and will go online again when she is single. And the Male Y will wait..and wait...and wait .
wow, such a plan is actually clever, everything is thought in small details :Laugh: but the male Y shouldn't be so desperate to send her money before the first meeting. trusting strangers is never a good idea - being cautious is the key

Scamming is also know as Fraud. I've been a victim of Fraud before. I bought 200 pound worth of Bitcoin on a fake site and it took me months to get my money back. In the end I did, thanks for sharing, I will look out for the scams

:Thumbsup::Thumbsup::Thumbsup:This is the Ultimate Scam Guide. It doesn't get better than this. It touches on everything and in detail too. I think everyone could learn a lot about scams from this. I'll surely refer to this again.

almost everyone who's working on internet got scammed atleast once , every person experience 'getting scammed' feeling would tell you how disappointing it is to get all of your efforts and wasted time lost within seconds , just because some pathetic loser decided to run away with your money , thanks for the guide !
